Howlingman ,


I can't believe more people don't know about this app. A great way to work you way through the NFBs catalog and there really is something for everyone. I especially love that you can DL films to watch off-line for 48 hrs (but those longer ones take a while to download). Only negative - wish there was a better way to navigate back thru the library after reading a film describe. Every time I do it kicks me back to the beginning of the list.

NFB Making Many Films Unavailable!

Maybe it is because I do not live in Canada. Many, many of your films are not available to watch. Bear
